Cleveland, Ohio- The legendary Agora Ballroom hosted Halloween this year to delight of the packed crowd . A favorite holiday among metal fans we had a special treat this year in the form of Jinjer .
Jinjer is metal band from the Ukraine formed in 2009.They have won best metal band in their home country twice in 2013 and 2016.I heard great things about this band so I was excited to see them .
The band hit the stage with a fury all while wearing unique costumes.The singer Tatiana Shmailyuk went as Amy Winehouse , the guitarist as a pimp and so on . The music was quick and furious with Tatiana commanding the stage like a general over looking her troops.One of the songs played was the popular ” I Speak Astronomy ” along with a mix of old and new including ” Dreadful Moments ” and ” Sit ,Stay, Roll Over ”
I have always been a fan of strong female vocals along the lines of Sister Sin and be warned Jinjer will be making its way to the top . This is a force to be reckoned with ! The current line up of the band is
- Tatiana Shmailyuk — vocals (2010–present)
- Roman Ibramkhalilov — guitars (2010–present)
- Eugene Abdiukhanov — bass (2011–present)
- Vladislav Ulasevich — drums (2016–present)
